1. What is the eccentricity of universal casters:
The distance between the steering axis of the swivel caster and the steering axis of the wheel is called the eccentricity.
When it comes to the eccentricity of universal casters, many of my friends may not have spoken of this term, because no matter whether it is on the Internet or elsewhere, there is very little introduction of this knowledge; and everyone pays more attention to the load of universal casters. , Material, price and other issues, and when talking about quality, it is rare to think that the eccentricity is related to its quality, so many don’t pay much attention to it. For the same eccentricity, we should pay attention to it when purchasing swivel casters. Perhaps it will affect the quality of the entire swivel casters at certain moments.
2. Detailed explanation of the eccentricity of universal casters:
The reason why the eccentricity is so important is that it directly determines the slewing performance and service life of the swivel caster. In the case of other dimensions of the same, the greater the eccentricity, the better the rotation performance of the caster, but at the same time, the contradiction is that with the increase of the eccentricity, the torque produced by the load during the use of the caster also increases linearly. Large, this will undoubtedly greatly affect the rotation life of the universal wheel; on the other hand, when other dimensions are the same, the smaller the eccentricity, the safer the caster will bear the load. Therefore, at the beginning of the design of casters, the eccentricity was considered as a life dimension to consider. When the eccentricity of a universal wheel is determined, its performance and life are determined. From another perspective, whether the eccentricity is reasonable or not can directly explain the good or bad, good and bad of this caster. .
Universal casters are mainly used in industrial production and life. The product itself has a high use value. You can see it in any industry. Although the eccentricity is not a very common term, it is not an influence on the overall situation. However, we must know that its existence cannot ignore it, but better use its characteristics to develop it and use it. Therefore, what we have to master is very simple: understand it, master it, pay attention to it, and use it. Through these, you will find that no matter which aspect of the universal caster, you will have a comprehensive understanding.
